Jay Paramesh beaded beaded beads crystals DIY dubai gold handmade nchantme Necklaces paramesh pearls seed beads swarovski

Gold Souk in Dubai is a dazzling place. While strolling through the souk with no intentions of buying, I saw unbelievable displays of jewelry made with gold, diamonds, and precious stones and occasionally silver. I even saw a couple of street hawkers selling gold jewelry. Most of the designs were large and not really my thing. But there were some that caught my eye. One of them was a long, 3 strand necklace dripping with Gulf pearls set in 22kt gold. The shopkeeper even let me try it on! I loved the design though the length and price at $17,000.00 was...

Recently, I saw pictures of ‘rose windows’ in Italy and France and wanted to capture the brilliance and complexity of these colorful mosaics in a unique piece of jewelry.

Pagoda Necklace

Jay Paramesh asia crystals delica dimensional gift gold handmade jayparam necklace Necklaces pagoda pagoda necklace pearls peyote ruby swarovski

As a lover of all things ancient from distant lands, my favorite visits have always included places of worship be it temples, churches, mosques or gurudwaras.  The architectural beauty of these buildings makes them stand out from rest of the structures around them. Once you enter you are overwhelmed by the use of ornamentation of every sort. It could be colorful tiles, use of gold and gemstones, intricate carvings all along the walls, beautiful paintings depicting the religious stories, the high ceilings or breath-taking stained glass windows. Add to this the sweet smell of flowers and incense, haunting music, rhythmic...
